The sister of late icon Prince says she promises to share the music in his storied vault with his fans.

When he passed away in April of 2016, His Purple Majesty left behind a massive collection of unreleased songs and music videos. Tyka Nelson says that Prince “always wanted people to hear his music” so she plans to make it her mission to share those rare tracks.

“I tell people if I don’t fulfill his wishes I don’t want to get to heaven and have him slap me,” she says. “He wanted to share his music, a lot like my father. As soon as I walked in the room we’d go over to the piano or the computer and he’d go ‘I wrote a new song listen to it’.

“He always wanted people to hear his music and I definitely would not leave this planet until I made sure his music is out there.”

Tyka made the statement while promoting the first-ever exhibition of the superstar titled My Name is Prince. The exhibition opens on October 27th and runs for three weeks at London’s O2 Arena. On display is a collection of previously unseen artifacts from the star, including the orange Cloud guitar he had made for his 2007 Super Bowl performance, a diamond studded cane, his Raspberry Beret cloud suit, and more.

“This is the first time we’ve taken any items out of Paisley Park,” Tyka says. “I’m so excited to be able to meet the fans and share their Prince stories and give them hugs, and have a cry with them if need be.”
